"The Shakespeare Theater of New Jersey enlivens late summer with a production that boasts considerable grace and style. Zest and flair abound!"

—Variety

 

This wildly witty and ever-popular classic weaves a hilariously tangled web of alter egos and mistaken identities. John Worthing leads a double life as "Ernest" while in London and "Jack" in the country, which causes comical confusion when he tries to woo the lovely Gwendolen. The mayhem multiplies when Algernon also adopts the alias "Ernest," and sets out to visit Cecily at Jack's country home. The tables quickly turn on these mischievous young men as their bachelorhood slips and their aliases are stripped, despite the duo's best efforts!
